Overview of the programUniversity Laboratory Animal Resources at The Ohio State University has an available opportunity for a Summer Externship. Our 12-week paid program is designed to provide the trainee with a broad exposure to all facets of laboratory animal medicine and its various disciplines including: research, management, clinical medicine, diagnostic services, training and experimental surgery.
